And in what ways can they affect relationships?

Neediness, lack of trust, overreaction to certain things, clingyness, desire to please, desperation to name a couple

What kind of things would they overreact to? And do you think that the issues could be repaired if they were to improve their relationship with their father later in life?

"daddy issues" effects a lot of people when their dad isn't in their lives or has put separation between them.
Its not wrong to have daddy issues but you can compare yourself to your dad under the circumstances or compare other men to your father.
it is getting over the issues that is the problem...

You'd be surprised at how much of a contribution your father plays when you are looking for a boyfriend.

Psychological studies (can't remember which one, someone might be able to help here) claim that the attachment to your father in younger life plays greatly to your relationships with men in later life, it claims that if you had a low attachment to your father you will try and find a partner whom has similar characteristics to him, whether they be physical or emotional to try and fill the void in which you never got the attachment.

I vividly remember this so if a psych student wants to chip in feel free lol.
